Fingerless Mitts Finished

All of a sudden while knitting Gail's basic socks, I decided I just had to have a pair of fingerless mittens to wear outside for taking pictures in the cold.

In my bins I found three large swatches of Andean Treasure, 100% baby alpaca, and knew it would be warm and wonderful. The pattern has been in my queue for several years now. Ribbing for fit and a lovely cable knot for beauty. Perfect.

I frogged the swatches and got three balls of yarn, a little kinky but it knit up fine.

The open finger end is long enough so I can curl my frozen fingers into the snugly alpaca when they're not needed for the camera. Now I just need to figure out how to use my camera outdoors in the rain/sleet/snow without the lens getting all wet.

Pattern: Fingerless Gloves. Scroll down for the English translation.

Yarn: Knitpicks Andean Treasure

Color: Trying to remember. I think it was called Fog.

Needles: Options #2/3.00mm circulars.
